  • We must continue to live by principle of freedom of belief, worship, Ambode urges Muslims
  • Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode
    on Sunday congratulated Muslims for the
    successful completion of Ramadan, just as he
    urged them to sustain the Godly virtues
    exhibited during the fasting period.
    Governor Ambode, who spoke at some of the
    twenty centres designated by the State
    Government to celebrate the Eid-el-Fitri, urged
    Muslims to sustain the spirit of love,
    brotherhood, tolerance and care which were
    dutifully demonstrated during the Ramadan, and
    also not forget the lessons which the season
    was meant to teach.
    He said: “As you celebrate this special day, I
    enjoin you all to sustain the spirit of love,
    brotherhood, tolerance and care which were
    dutifully demonstrated during the Ramadan. Let
    us not forget the lessons that Ramadan was
    meant to teach us which include the fear of Allah
    and care for the less-privileged in our society.”
    The Governor identified harmonious co-
    existence among all adherents of various
    religions in the country as a necessary impetus
    to bring about peace, progress and prosperity.
    He said every religion preaches peace and
    harmonious co-existence among all people, and
    that it was important for the people to continue
    to live by such principle to foster growth and
    economic prosperity.
    The Governor said he was highly appreciative of
    the support extended to his administration by
    religious leaders, as well as the religious
    tolerance and cooperation existing in the State,
    pledging never to take it for granted.
    While specifically thanking Islamic scholars and
    leaders in the State for their prayers and
    support, Governor Ambode assured that the
    State Government would continue to uphold and
    protect the right of all citizens to freedom of
    belief and freedom of worship.
    “Let me again use this opportunity to pledge our
    commitment to uphold and protect the right of
    all citizens to freedom of belief and freedom of
    worship. Every religion preaches peace and
    harmonious co-existence among all people.
    “We must continue to live by this principle so
    that our State and nation will continue to grow
    in peace, progress and prosperity,” he said.
    Besides, the Governor reiterated the commitment
    of his administration towards upholding and
    enhancing security of lives and property of
    residents, just as he urged the people to
    continue to support and cooperate with all
    security agencies including the recently
    inaugurated Neighborhood Safety Corps as they
    strive to keep the State safe.
    In his sermon at Evans Square, Ebute-Metta,
    Leader of Conference of Islamic Organizations of
    Nigeria, Imam Abdulahi Shuaib thanked God for
    the Governors He has blessed the State with,
    and the wisdom given to former Governor of the
    State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to identify the
    leadership qualities in Governor Ambode.
    He said in just two years, the State has
    witnessed massive transformation in all sectors
    and sections, saying that it was obvious that
    Governor Ambode was governing with the fear of
    God.
    “Look at the 114 roads that were constructed in
    all the Local Government areas and Local
    Council Development Areas; the traffic nightmare
    in Abule Egba has been solved with the
    construction of flyover and inner roads; over
    365 streets have been light up courtesy of the
    Light Up Lagos Initiative; security has been
    enhanced with purchase of 3 helicopters, gun
    boats, patrol vehicles and Armored Personnel
    Carriers, among others; the healthcare system
    too has received massive boost with the
    purchase of Mobile Intensive Care Ambulances
    and upgrade of our health centres.
    “Governor Ambode has done a lot but like Oliver
    twist, there is room to do more but all I will say
    is to ask the people to continue to support him
    with prayers,” Shuaib said.
    Also, Chief Imam of Lagos Central Division,
    Sheik Sabiti Akani Owowunmi commended the
    Governor for his giant strides so far, and prayed
    for a successful tenure of office.
    The Governor was represented at some of the
    twenty centres by his wife, Mrs Bolanle Ambode
    and other State functionaries, while the
    celebration featured recitation of Quran, quiz and
    dance competitions, among others.
